    This simple recipe makes GREAT tasting shawarma. We like this served in pitas with this wonderful garlic mayo: Garlic Aioli tomato, cucumber, and red onion. Really a wonderful, flavorful sandwich. Hope you enjoy!

      Wonderful smells permeated the house while this was cooking! It produced a nicely flavored and tender meat. I served with Cucumber Raita and we very much enjoyed the combo. Thanks for sharing!

      We love Shwarma and I always thought it was impossible to make at home until I found this yummy recipe. The meat was delicious. I served it in a fresh warm lafa as a sandwich mixed with diced tomatoes, cucumber and red onion just like you recomended. I also mixed in some Tahini and humus, What a treat! Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe.

      this was really good... i think that next time i'm going to cook it in the crock pot. so that i don't have to worry about it drying up in the pot. it really did taste and smell like shawarma. I made it with the recommended garlic sauce and it was so so yummy.
